The inaugural Desmond Tutu Award goes to ......Archbishop Desmond Tutu

MUNYARADZI MAKONI writes: The inaugural Desmond Tutu Award for HIV Prevention Research and Human Rights has been awarded - to Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

The award recognises the link between HIV prevention research and respect for all people affected by the epidemic says Mitchel Warren, executive director of AVAC, a global advocacy for HIV prevention.

It’s no coincidence that the first award goes to Tutu.

“What is exciting about this award is it’s been given to someone who has championed and HIV prevention from the pulpit,” says Warren.

The award will be given at successive biennial HIV R4P meetings to a researcher or anyone who has demonstrated commitment to fight HIV.
